Musical theatre in the old way

Història de Joan nascut d'un ós ( Story of John-of-the-bear    

Festival Temporada Alta. Girona

 

While my son, Noe, was growing up, who would end up being the first spectator of the next show. I am talking about that wonderful tale of the Catalan oral tradition recovered by Joan Amades: Joan de l'Os.

 

It is one of the most famous traditional Catalan fables and is full of mythical components.

 

The protagonist, born from the union of a woman with a bear, he will have to fight against the father's authority until  his death and will become a type of hero who is very romantic: he will experience the unjust rebuking of others and also the betrayal of his friends, because it is not only the alteration, but also the alteration, on the contrary, that, the lonely, ferment and the imperturbable way will continue.

 

Once again the elaboration process took us about three years, and I say "us" because together with Pitu Andreu, Xavier Macaya and Ricard Vallina we started something very new then for us: rescue timbres of voice, rhythms and melodies that did not obey so much a musical score as ways to be and feel possibly already disappeared.

That's how it was born; the musical theater in the old way.
